  • Page 5: Introduction

    Introduction This document shows how to configure Dell™ Networking S5000 switches for use with EqualLogic™ PS Series storage using Dell best practices. The recommended configuration uses only Ethernet modules and uses link aggregation groups (LAGs) for inter-switch connections. Optional steps are provided in Section 3 to enable Data Center Bridging (DCB).

  • Page 7: Dell Recommended Switch Configuration

    Dell recommended switch configuration These steps outline how to configure two S5000 switches with a Link Aggregation Group (LAG) interconnect. The switches are interconnected using two 40 GbE Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP) uplink ports, and the LAG is configured for Dynamic Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP).

    Option 1: You can enable ports individually by entering the port number FTOS(conf)#interface tengigabitethernet 0/0 FTOS(conf-if-te-0/0)#switchport FTOS(conf-if-te-0/0)#no shutdown FTOS(conf-if-te-0/0)#exit Option 2: You can enable multiple ports at once using the “range” parameter SCG1007 Dell Networking S5000 Switch Configuration Guide for EqualLogic SANs...

  • Page 13: Reverting From Dcb To Non-Dcb Configuration (Optional)

    VLAN ID (typically 0 or 1) or a specific VLAN can be configured (for example, VLAN 100). If a non-default VLAN is configured, then any ports connected to the arrays must be configured as “untagged”. SCG1007 Dell Networking S5000 Switch Configuration Guide for EqualLogic SANs...
  • Page 14: Save Configuration

    Use the steps below to configure the default VLAN on the switch. FTOS#configure FTOS(conf)#no interface vlan vlan-id FTOS(conf)#exit Save configuration FTOS#copy running-config startup-config Configure additional switch Repeat the commands in Section 4 to disable DCB on any additional switches.
